Losing Someone to Cancer


Losing Someone to Cancer

This is for anyone who has lost somone to cancer. I lost my adopted Mom to breast cancer some years ago. She was everything I could have asked for. She loved me because I was just me. She also loved my family and children as if they were her own.

It was hard, I would want to throw something, I would cry.  People would look at me with such pity and after he passed there were several people who told me.. now it's your turn to live.  I still have anxiety and I always think I wish I could talk to him, tell me what he felt and if he is at peace and ok.  We lived thru it though.  I keep thinking if I get sick, I will I be like that?  I would hate to put that on my daughter

You are both wise to walk away from your loved one and cool down and collect yourself when they don't treat you right. I've had to do that, too. It's far better than getting angry and yelling back at them. I've made that mistake, too. My husband could push my hot buttons easily and I sometimes got upset at him instead of walking away. I also did a lot of holding my tongue and not saying anything at all. I wasn't free to speak in my own home for many hours of each day unless I wanted a confrontation that would go nowhere but downhill.

I always had to put into perspective the disease.   I remember friends came and brought food, at this point my husband was in a hospital bed unable to walk.   I was about to eat and he called me, I started to walk to him and his buddy said hey Dan what do you need, I'll get it, Donna is eating and he got angry and said no I want her now!  No, I would never verbalize to him how tired I was or anything.  He had been given a 3 week life sentence at that point, I would have to walk away or go outside and collect myself.  Hospice had told us to expect this. That they are angry and they will take it out on the one they are closest to.  Life is always changing and I take nothing for granted.

Lessons in the Aftermath of Mom"s Death

It's been about 15 months since my mom died after battling colon cancer that metastasized and spread quickly.Mom's courage and faith were extraordinary. She seemed to provide us with some final lessons about life and people in the final months of her life.I miss her so much - her optimism, love of family and her persevering spirit.Since her death, my family and I have to deal with some difficult things with my stepfather. He remarried within 8 months of her death and tried to manipulate us into…See More

losing my sister

I am happy I found this group.My sister Adele passed away in February of this year.She had lung cancer.She was not a smoker and lived a healthy life.If anyone should live to 100 it should have been her.Unfortunately it turned out to be a mutation in her genes. We did not grow up close to each other due to circumstances beyond our control.Just when we started getting close again she got the news she was dying,She was my only sister and older than me.She held my hand when  we were little and…See More

6 months later, I feel like it just happened.

My Mom passed January 20th. I am physically disabled, I lived with her my whole life. I'm 50. She was my only support. I was just me and her... And our dog.She had no will, so for the next month, I had to  cancel accounts, start new accounts in my name, try to work out getting bills paid, and run to social services looking for help. I was constantly worried about where I'd live. Can someone help me keep my home?!I felt kind of numb at that time a good part of the time. I felt sadness at times…See More

Showing Your Support beyond the Funeral for a grieving person

Coping with a death of a loved one doesn’t end with the funeral. Their memories and things they left behind still live with us and it is really hard to stop thinking about them. Whatever we do we always tend to think about them and miss their presence. Helping a grieving person adjust to the new lifestyle without their loved ones can be really appreciated. Your help and service doesn’t end with the funeral but you can still stretch out your love to them as a close friend or family member. Here…See More
